Leonardo da Vinci had the good luck to be born out of wedlock. Otherwise, he would have been expected to become a notary, like the firstborn legitimate sons in his family stretching back at least five generations. In 1910 Freud used the kite tale as the foundation for a short book, Leonardo da Vinci and a Memory of His Childhood. Freud got off to a stumbling start by using a poor German translation of Leonardo’s note that mistakenly called the bird a vulture rather than a kite.

Leonardo was the prototypical "Renaissance Man," a fact that renders him remarkably difficult for any one biographer to encapsulate fully. Add to that the page limitations imposed upon writers of the Penguin Lives (the typical Life is roughly 165 pages long), and you have an impossible task, no matter how competent the author.

Sherwin Nuland is that rarest of all creatures, an articulate doctor (surgeon), who has written several popular books about his craft, including the very popular How We Die: Reflections on Life's Final Chapter. So he was the ideal choice to write about Leonardo's anatomical studies, which he does well.

What he omits is any discussion of Leonardo's other accomplishments in art, mechanics, aeronautics,... But what modern writer could have written knowledgeably about those wide-ranging fields? Perhaps Isaac Asimov, but he died in 1992.

To Dr. Nuland's credit, he doesn't try, producing instead a fine book on those topics he does understand. Still, he doesn't capture the man.

For those who are interested, there is an excellent film, The Life of Leonardo Da Vinci, produced for Italian television in 1971, that provides a superb overview of Leonardo's life. A labor of love by the Italians, it is the definitive film on the subject.

There can be little doubt that Leonardo da Vinci was a man of great intellect and skill. His impact upon society, however, has not been great. His inventions were never brought to fruition and his work in anatomy, while treasured today as being complex and far sighted, did little for the practice of medicine at the time of its publication. Yet, despite all this, it is a brave man who totally disregards Leonardo.

The author of this work on da Vinci, Sherwin B. Nuland, is a surgeon; an interesting choice for a biographer. Nuland brings a particular skill set to the work but not a complete skill set. The first portion of the book that deals in general with Leonardo's life is not strong. The reader is whisked through the years without ever feeling that he has gained any insights whatsoever. But, when Nuland turns to anatomy in the final chapters, the books takes a whole new turn. Clearly, the writer's knowledge shines and the reader sees in much greater depth the genius that was Leonardo.

At a time when there were no X rays, anesthesia or any real knowledge of the body's circulatory system, Leonardo's work was brilliant. Rather than describe the workings of the human body, Leonardo used drawings as his medium. Working with cadavers and having to work at great haste, Leonardo was a man ahead of his time. Nuland allows the reader to truly imagine the skill of the man.

Overall, Nuland's book is a work in two parts. The first, which is general biography, has only slight merit. His subsequent analysis of Leonardo's work in anatomy reads wonderfully. It is a great pity that the whole book could not have been of the same standard as the second part.

The focus of this informative biography is da Vinci the anatomist, not Leonardo the painter or proto-technologist. Indeed, this biography truly comes alive only when Nuland, a surgeon and author, describes the advances Leonardo achieved in his study of the body. In my opinion, Nuland's touch isn't so sure in other areas of Leonardo's achievement and there are, in fact, patches that sound like a product of rushed and unedited dictation. Still, I'd rate this as a superior introduction to a scientist centuries ahead of his time. This fine book, by the way, definitely enriched my experience at the da Vinci exhibit that is now showing at New York's Metropolitan Museum of Art.

This is a concise and well written biography of the great artist and scientist. It is especially interesting because of the clear explanations by Dr. Nuland of just how advanced were Leonardo's observations for his time. An excellent read!
Kajikus
A bit tedious at times, but worth reading if you have any interest in the Renaissance, or in the life of the original and ultimate Renaissance Man.
Nikohn
I chose this rating because, although the book is interesting, it has so much detail as to other people and places, that sometimes I forget it's about Leonardo. I thought it would merely follow his life and ingenuity. All in all, it is very informative!
Andriodtargeted
A disappointment. I'm a fan of Penguin Lives series, which, tend to give a somewhat alternative -- and fascinating -- view of their subject. Not so with Nuland's Leonardo. I struggled with Nuland's use of Freud as a reference point for Leonardo, and with his belaboring Leonardo's presumed homosexuality as a reference point for understanding his life. By the time I made it past this, I admit I didn't give Nuland's manuscript my fair attention. And I'm content leaving it that way.
Excellent reading
